Washington - A 56-year old man has been taken off of a transplant list because he used Medical Marijuana. He is dying of a failing liver.
The University of Washington Medical Center has stated that since the man used Medical Marijuana, he cannot be considered for a transplant.
He used the Medical Marijuana for the relief of hepatitis C symptoms.
Doctors stated that they use Medical Marijuana as a way to gauge whether or not a patient can handle the treatment needed for a full transplant.
Needless to say though, the man, Timothy Garon, could now die because he has been denied his transplant.
